Lisa Ling arrives at the Step Up Women's Network's 2009 Inspiration Awards Luncheon at the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons Hotel on June 5, 2009 in Beverly Hills, California.
Lisa Ling lost her baby in a miscarriage six months ago, an experience the journalist said made her feel like “a complete failure.”
During the appearance, Ling, 37, reportedly said she was just seven weeks pregnant when she learned her baby did not have a heartbeat.
"I don't know that I took [the pregnancy] as seriously as I should have because it happened so fast,” she said, according to People. “But then when I heard the doctor say there was no heartbeat it was like bam, like a knife through the heart.”
Ling, who is married to oncologist Paul Song, said that after losing her baby she “felt more like a failure” than she had “in a very long time.”
The journalist said she’s co-founded a website, secretsocietyofwomen.com, to encourage other women to share their stories on taboo or uncomfortable subjects.
